How the spider diagram works

Until recently, it was looking like being a Hinrunde to forget for Augsburg. The gruelling UEFA Europa League schedule appeared to be having a detrimental effect on their performances in the Bundesliga as they tumbled into the bottom two, but Die Fuggerstädter knuckled down and their fortunes duly picked up towards the end of 2015.

Augsburg beat the odds to reach the last 32 of the Europa League and, on the back of a five-match unbeaten run, have managed to haul themselves out of the bottom three, a respectable five points clear of the relegation zone.

Top facts

    Augsburg's defenders have scored more goal (seven) than any other back line in the division.No team have scored more goals from dead-ball situations than Augsburg (ten).
